4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love going to IU. It's an incredibly welcoming community, and I have met so many wonderful people who have changed me for the better. Learning how to become an excellent educator is so amazing, interesting, and rewarding. I have gotten to become a member of the Bloomington community through teaching children at a variety of schools, and in a varying level of socio-ecnomic classes. This has been deeply rewarding, as it has allowed me to learn more about different schools, students, and how they operate, but also about myself. I have grown as a person by learning to accept others as who they are, while also trying to make the world a better place. While attending IU, I have met the people that will be my friends for the rest of my life--they will be a second family not only to me, but also to my future family and children. IU has become my home, and a part of me. If I had the chance to choose a new school, I would choose to fall in love with IU all over again. These past three years have been some of the greatest years of my life, and I will never forget them. I can only be both excited and disappointed that my undergrad is coming to an end. I love IU and my friends that I've come to know with all of my heart.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is so kind and welcoming at Indiana University. It's a very diverse school where "being weird isn't weird". During orientation, everyone made sure to make the most out of their experience of IU. The size is wonderful and the campus is beautiful. Almost everyone looks out for each other and sticks up for one another. Indiana University is a beautiful, welcoming place with wonderful people. Even my academic adviser was kind and helpful when I was figuring out what classes to sign up for. I don't think there is a better place to learn and grow as a person than Indiana University.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Attending Indiana University in Bloomington has been the best decision I ever made. This school has exceeded my expectations in every way. There are endless opportunities at IU. Not to mention the campus is absolutely gorgeous. Most importantly, the academics are outstanding and I feel beyond prepared for the rest of my life because of my time at IU. I have truly found a home away from home at IU and I would not change my college decision for anything. IU, and college in general, is truly what you make it. With the right attitude and a little ambition, IU Bloomington can easily become anyone's favorite place on earth.

Overall Experience: Something about Indiana University that is unique is the many successors of the university and their willingness to reach out and stay connected with the university. A lot of the alum seem to feel linked with the school like a family and that alone makes for a wonderful experience. Another thing about this great Indiana college is the commitment to tradition and do so in graceful manner. One thing that could use improvement that would ultimately make me want to go to another university is the disconnect between minority and majority students but when you have a certain audience I understand that one must cater to the students with a larger presence.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Indiana University has combined the inclusiveness of small liberal arts schools through the time and attention that career and educational faculty devote to students. However, it has the social atmosphere of other large universities. Specifically, the Kelley School of Business insures that education rigor rivals that of any other business school in the nation.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Indiana University is the best of both worlds. The academics are challenging, but there is also a very inviting and fun atmosphere filled with all different kinds of demographics and walks of life. Bloomington is a great college town filled with tradition and history. I am so glad I can call IU home!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at college really exposed me to life beyond my small high school. I met all types of new people and joined several clubs while making life long friends. I was challenged in my academics and pushed to do my very best and stay focused on my school work. If I had to go through the decision process of selecting a college, I would choose Indiana University in a heartbeat.

Overall Experience: I really liked the application IU got me instead of the common app. It allowed me to customize my own profile to suit my persona better and allow me to translate my ability to succeed well at IU. I feel as though every college should have both access to common apps and their own applications because each college can make an application more suited to their needs. It also makes tech at each college easier because you can directly give out student IDs and passwords in a easier fashion with custom applications.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had my eyes set on Loyola University in Chicago. I got accepted and received scholarships, but not quite enough. It was too expensive. So, I had to settle for my number two school; Indiana University Bloomington. The main reason I was hesitant to go to IU was because I was worried about being around all the same people as I was in high school. I'm from Fort Wayne, IN, and sometimes it seems like the entire city goes to IU. But that was honestly the only thing I could find wrong with the school. It's a beautiful campus, it's the perfect distance from home, and once I was actually there I realized that I only had to see people from home if I wanted to. I made so many friends from all over the country. I love the size of campus. I had good experiences with all of my professors. Looking back on my freshman year, I can not imagine having gone anywhere else.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I applied to my current school because my mother told me to. Little did I know, I'd actually love it. The atmosphere on campus is electric and I am a proud Hoosier. Everybody on campus supports one another and that is very important for a school to have. They also make transitions between years very easy. Not to mention, the opportunities offered are like none other that I have seen (all big four accounting firms and household names such as Macy's, Target, etc. recruit heavy out of the school). I would choose this school all over again in a heartbeat. I learned so much about myself and other people which is something I didn't expect after one year on campus. The pride, spirit, and support are what make me secure in my decision.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
